This mesmerizing vintage rug, created by a renowned Swedish designer Beatrice Pinlstrand, is outstanding in many ways. Its style – Rya – is actually the oldest type of the northern antique oriental rugs that was developed in order to protect the people, especially the mariners living off the sea, from the harsh climatic conditions. Ryas were modeled on natural animal fur, thus they are distinguished by an exceptionally long and shaggy pile.

This rya was masterly hand-executed of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques reaching back to the middle ages, which ensures its quality and longevity. However, it is the phenomenal design by Beatrice Pinlstrand that makes the Scandinavian rug so special. Its field resembles an abstract painting with a hint of impressionism. Pinlstrand used dark brown as the background for the delicate touches of toned colors in many shades, including sapphire, pastel blue, plum, off-white, emerald, orange, off-white, light yellow or magenta, which make up the design.

In fact, there is no actual distinction between the background and the pattern, the colors freely mix together and blur. The whole composition brings to mind the magnificent aurora borealis with a lighter spot that might have been inspired with the Pole Star. This vintage Swedish Rug can be used as a runner, as it’s long and narrow. It will be an enchanting addition to any interior, classic or modern, bringing in a refreshing and dramatic vibe of Scandinavian miracles of nature.
